There are just so many fairy tale film adaptations happening nowadays that adding another one seems like crazy talk. But adding another one we are.

Dorothy of Oz, an animated sequel to The Wizard of Oz, is coming soon to a theater near you. True, an Oz-sequel has already been done, 1985’s Return to Oz. It was quirky, it had spunk…and it fell just a *little bit short* of being good. But! Dorothy of Oz looks promising.

So what’s the story about, and why does it have potential? Read the rest of this entry »


Yes I admit it…I like Gregory Maguire. I know. How boringly contemporary of me. But I’ll stick by him. I really loved Wicked and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister.

Lately though, he’s been in a bit of a slump. Son of a Witch was pretty bad, mostly because it stayed in Oz, followed a character nobody liked from Wicked, and didn’t add anything new to Oz’s universe.

You think he would’ve learned.

A new book from the world of Oz will be hitting the stores soon: A Lion Among Men, which tells the story of the Cowardly Lion. Ah! Not again!

Gregory: stay true to your roots! Let’s have a retelling of Hansel and Gretel, or the Frog Prince! Go out in a blaze of revisionist glory! I mean, what’s next? “If I Only Had a Heart: The Saga of the Tin Man.” I can just seeing it being made into a Lifetime Original movie…
